“A Big Deal” — Physicists Solve 20-Year Mystery of Stable Chiral Nanostructures

Posted by in categories: computing, information science, nanotechnology, physics

Researchers have finally succeeded in building a long-sought nanoparticle structure, opening the door to new materials with special properties.

Alex Travesset does not have a sparkling research lab stocked with the most cutting-edge instruments for probing new nanomaterials and measuring their unique properties.

Instead of using traditional laboratory instruments, Alex Travesset, a professor of physics and astronomy at Iowa State University and an affiliate of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames National Laboratory, relies on computer models, equations, and figures to understand the behavior of new nanomaterials.
